CLASSICAL | Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra 

There has been no shortage of recent discussion about Russian political influence in America, but it might just be time to take a break and listen to Russian music performed by an American orchestra instead. This Thursday and Saturday, guest conductor James Feddeck will lead the RPO in a sweeping program highlighting two greats of the Russian classical repertoire: Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff. Solo pianist Natasha Paremski joins the RPO for Tchaikovsky's — at-times frenetic, always majestic — Piano Concerto No. 1, and the program closes with Rachmaninoff's enchanting Symphony No. 3. The concert also features American composer Sean Shepherd's "Magiya," an ode to the charming, mystical tradition of Russian storytelling that was specifically written as an overture to iconic Russian compositions.

The RPO will perform Thursday, March 9, at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, March 11, at 8 p.m., at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs Street. $23-$99. 454-2100. rpo.org.
